Rebuild of my 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger Xlt while i was in Rolling Fork, MS. 2005 A montage of pics i put together from this time, i purchased this vehicle while working on a dredge job. I was pulling a twelve hour shift at the jobsite and then working on the Bronco on my time off.
I had to purchase tools and such to do a complete rebuild from Wally World and the parts stores, I wasn't to happy with the quality of tools but hey I wasn't gonna make a trip to Dallas, TEXAS to get my personal tools.
As i started into what I thought was going to be a quick fix, my don't "do it halfway" complex took over every step of the way, and needless to say i opened up a real big can of worms. The end game was very rewarding as you may be able to see.
I used Gene Krupa and some music by The Meteors to help with the viewing.
I had a lot of support from my girlfriend Kim P at the time of the rebuild.
Questions and comments are welcome. just remember if you want to critique my work, "It is my truck and you aint got to ride in it"
Look for the other vid of the engine test run also.

Double Bronco across the mud. The two tone is a 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT auto with a 460.
The silver one is a 1978 Ford Bronco Custom, 4 speed manual, 351M.
"Shu" would call me up and say "LETS GO FOR A DIG" no plates or anything. The silver bronco was my first truck, and the vehicle I learned to drive stick on. Randy was working the camera and doing commentary.

The Phoenix: Ted Nugent Bronco [S5 Ep.3-3]
There is a saying that for every good side of something , there's also a dark side. Today on GEARZ, Stacey goes there as he reveals what to do when bad things happen to good projects. Using Ted Nugent's old broken down and discarded Bronco as an example, he shows how to start over and re-kindle the passion in a project that has been given up on by everybody else. If your project has been stolen or stripped, or has become stranded by hard times, sometimes all it needs is a little change of direction to get it to rise out of the ashes and soar again. If Stacey can get Ted's old Bronco to rise like a Phoenix out of the ashes and fly again, you can do the same thing with your project too! You just have to roll up your sleeves and get to it!
